Big slot jackpot win at Idaho casino

25 February 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- One lucky winner hit it big on Monday walking home with an extra $112,000 from Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort Hotel.

Brian and his wife were betting pennies at $5 a spin around 10 p.m. when it happened.

“I couldn’t believe it; it was pure shock. My wife was sitting next to me and she screamed,” said jackpot winner, Brian. “I’ve won a few jackpots over the years, but nothing like this. We didn’t sleep that night and kept thinking to ourselves ‘this can’t be real, what are we going to do?’”

The couple said they live about 50 miles from Coeur d’Alene Casino and have come out about once a week over the last couple of years.

“Winning this big was exciting and fun, and just unbelievable,” said Brian. “We enjoy coming out and love the Red Tail Bar & Grill. We can’t wait to come back to hit a jackpot like this again!”

The winner was playing Aristocrat’s Caribbean Gold Dollar Storm machine. According to Aristocrat’s website, Caribbean Gold showcases the latest in gaming mechanics and features a progressive jackpot with five levels of jackpots and bonuses.

“We love to see our players win big! ” said Holly Hawthorne, director of video gaming at Coeur d’Alene Casino. “In the last year, we’ve seen five players win six-figure jackpots.”

Players still have plenty of chances to win with the $80,000 History in the Baking Giveaway happening this weekend. On Friday and Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. 40 lucky winners will each walk away with $1,000. Winners will get to spin a pie-shaped prize wheel to receive a bonus Extra Play Cash prize valued between $50 and $150. Those interested in qualifying can play their favorite video gaming machine to earn entries. They’ll get one entry for every 250 points earned with a Coeur Rewards Card.
